I am a true book worm, I trade on line, do you belong to PAPERBACK SWAP? Contact me if you don't know about them, I have been with them for about 6 years, trading and making friends, books are free, you pay for the mailing which most time is less than 2.50 depending on the mail man. You send them media mail which is far cheaper . I will look up the book you are reading, I always like to find a new author. Marcia

Comment: thank you so much for a wonderful package....sorry to be late rating
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful package. Sorry I am so late in rating. Thank you!
Comment: Sorry for the late rating - I thought I had done it earlier. It would be nice if our group could get together to meet everyone face to face since we are getting to know each other better. I love adding beadwork to my quilts and am also working on a piece of sashiko(Japanese quilting) using all bead. I teach classes at my development and at local quilt shops when I can. This year my quilt guild is doing some back to basic workshops that I'll be teaching so that will be fun. Happy swapping

Comment: Thank you for the lovely selection of teas! I can not wait to try them! I like the way you mentioned how cozy it feels to drink them in your pjs. I do that also and it is so nice in the cold winters! Happy swapping!
Response: I do hope you enjoy them. Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thanks for the comments. Yes I do enjoy stained glass, made crosses and sold them for a group at church to add to the coffers. Raleigh's nice, but like you, I lived in a rural area in Ohio. Ya know...you can take the girl out of the country, but not the country out of the girl. So I think I'm more 'laid back' that some of the people I have met...and like. See ya at the mail box.
Comment: Thanks for the comment on my profile. Im not sure where Roper is but I do know Hendersonville. I grew up near Hickory. I currently do not post anywhere online. Not because I dont want to it just dont know how. I have been trying to figure out Flickr and I dont know how to make a blog. Hope to learn soon. When I get it figured out I will let you know. Great getting to know you!
Comment: Thank you for the nice card, and I'm sorry this feedback is late! :)
Comment: Wow! Thank you so much for the wonderful note and the boxes (!!) of tea!
Comment: Love, love this card! Thanks and Happy Holidays!!

Hope it is SEW Special

Thanks so much for being a part of Carolina Gals! You are one of the reasons, I can't bear to shut it down! I hope to stay on board and host at least one swap a month this year. It's really the only resolution I've made! :oP

I love fabric and sewing, also using felt for projects. How long have you been sewing? I started a couple years ago. I feel like I've made good progress, but there is so much talent out there that's amazing!

I love Amy Butler, too! I looked up Anna Maria & Heather Bailey-- they're fabulous too. Have you checked out the fabrics Pat Bravo has out? Those are similar to the ones you like! :o)

I wish I had more aprons. They're so useful and can be adorable!

I found these when I was looking around for some cute apron ideas. Those are made for and etsy shop by Betty. You can check them out there for some inspiration, perhaps! Lol. I love the hamburger and fries! I might have to take a whirl at that one!

Thanks, again, for joining this swap!

Hi Tammy, I am one of your partner for the Carolina Gals :: Read Profile & Comment swap. You are very lucky to live in the moutains, my In-Laws just bought a cabin on Polly Mountain in TN. We just went to visit about 3 weeks ago and I loved! I would grabbed my camera and go off by myself, unfortunley great photos weren't the only thing I got. A bad case of poison ivy too, but the waterfall was so worth it ( I think) lol

I'm jealous, that you can sew! That is something I would love to learn. My DH bought me a sewing machine a couple of years ago, and I still haven't found someone to teach me. I signed up for beginner classes at a local sewing store, but thier beginning idea was way different than mine!

I hope the Carolina Gal group can have a meet-up this year, I would love to meet everyone. I hope you have a wonderful and crafty New Year... Connie

Hi, Tammy! I'm one of your partners in the Carolina Gals :: Read Profile & Comment. We've swapped before so it's nice to be your partner again. Hope you are having a Happy New Year! I am resolving to learn how to sew...hopefully, I will make good on that resolution this year! I am a fan of Project Runway, too, and I love how they can create clothes to wear...that's the main reason why I want to learn to sew - so when I can't find anything to wear, I can just make something! I'm a fan of easy recipes, too. It's been a while since I've cooked - I've let the bf take that over but I've been pinning recipes on pinterest and it's brought back the interest! LOL - here's to hoping 2013 is a great, creative year for everyone! Happy Swapping :)

I still love my mug rug!!!! :)

sagesparrow on Oct 7, 2011:

Your mug rug is so wonderfully sewn, it's an inspiration to me. I think now I can try those mitered edges.... And the colors go with my desk. I love the edging pattern, there are two parts of the pinwheel that are that as well, they remind me of a zentangle pattern! Actually I love everything about this mug rug. It's on my desk and I'm using it for my tea right this minute. So thank you again! <3
